Simon Baz And Jessica Cruz Meet Doctor Polaris In ‘Green Lanterns’ #19 [Preview]
Thanks in no small part to innovative ideas, engaging personalities, and a character dynamic that plays on the two main characters' personality flaws, addressing them and showing the two Green Lanterns working to overcome them, Green Lanterns has been one of my favorite titles of DC's Rebirth era so far. Now, in this week's issue, we get to see those two new characters take on a classic Green Lantern foe: the malevolently magnetic Dr. Polaris. Check out a preview!

The ‘Riverdale’ Ongoing Series May In Fact Involve A Kumite [Preview]
Here's the only thing you need to know about Riverdale, the new ongoing series from Archie Comics that ties into the CW's truly bonkers television drama of the same name. So you know how every episode of the TV show is named after a movie, like "Touch of Evil" or "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!"? It turns out that they're keeping that up for the comic and the two stories that make up this first issue, too. One is called Bloodsport. The other is called Bring It On.

Complete The GI Joe Roster With A Larry Hama Action Figure From Kickstarter
I love GI Joe in all its forms, but even with 27 different variations of Snake Eyes and a small army of Destros, I've always felt like my action figure collection was missing something. Like, say, a godlike figure who could walk among them, shaping their extremely complicated destinies. And now, I finally have the chance to add that with the Larry Hama: A Rea American Creator action figure, currently available from Bill Murphy in an unofficial, not-at-all-affiliated-with-Hasbro-or-GI Joe Kickstarter campaign.
Hanging Out With Flair, Being Best Friends With ‘The King': Mike Kingston’s Absurd Journey to ‘Headlocked: The Hard Way’ [Interview]
Mike Kingston has described Headlocked, the comic he writes with artist Michel Mulipola as a cable TV drama-style take on the world of professional wrestling, centered on an aspiring actor who gives up on theater to focus on making it in the King of Sports. With three volumes funded through Kickstarter campaigns, the series has become a cult favorite among wrestling fans and comics readers, both for the ongoing story and the involvement of pro wrestlers as writers and artists for bonus stories included in the paperbacks Now, as the campaign for Headlocked Volume 4: The Hard Way is rolling along, I sat down with Kingston at Emerald City Comic-Con to talk about bridging the gap between comics and pro wrestling, the strange journey he's taken, and what it's like to share a table at a comic book convention with the legendary 16-time world champion, Ric Flair.
On The Cheap: Get ‘Cosmic Scoundrels,’ ‘Parker,’ And More In IDW’s Latest Humble Bundle
The Humble Bundle deals on comics are usually a pretty good way to catch up with older stories that you may have missed out on, but every now and then, there's one that features a brand new title to love --- and right now, the IDW Creator Showcase bundle is offering up a pretty good mix of both. Not only is it full of old favorites like Locke & Key and 30 Days of Night, it also features the debut issue of Andy Suriano and Matt Chapman's Cosmic Scoundrels --- and friends, that is a comic book that hit shelves last week that can be yours (along with a ton of other great titles) for as little as a buck.

With almost 300 issues in the core series, Archie's Sonic The Hedgehog stands as the longest-running uninterrupted American monthly comic book that's currently being published. In Hedging Your Bets, I attempt to get up to speed on Sonic the Hedgehog, challenging the odds to hopefully make it all the way to the finish line. This week, we gear up for Worlds Unite, ask the question of whether any of this matters, and find more reasons to kinda love Knuckles the Echidna.
